Here's your first warning for spoilers.Fun fact, I used to have one on my old car, and it was a good place to put the petrol lid on while refuelling.
Warning two, wipe your shoe.It's finally cold enough to wear sneakers! Hooray!
Warning three, honeybee.Both my sister and father are now beekeepers.
That's enough visible lines in the first section, so you shouldn't see anything that'll give away any major plot details in your message centre.
As we know, these are all in Italian. Thanks to my teenagehood Italophilia, I could understand a bit of what they were saying, but my only practice as of late has been listening to Italian tenors.
So bear with me, I could be proven wrong.These were my thoughts as I watched the episodes. They're a bit silly, so take 'em all with a grain of salt!Episode 1
Hey, it's that bouncing fluff from my first animation project! Darn, I was hoping to make those Hamrawit's minions one day. Oh well. From now on, I'll be calling them MOOPs (M
roject)s. They make a big fish MOOP.
Alfea and Red Fountain's renders look a lot better than I have ever seen them. Well done, 3D background team.
Kiko looks so fluffy and cuddly. I think he is one of the winners in the new style. I think he looks cuter with the smaller eyes and rounder face.
I'm getting used to the new style on the girls, but still can't see them as ladies in their mid 20s in that style. They look 12-15. The boys look even younger. Did all that space travel atrophy the glorious muscles of their past? I still love their new casual outfits, as mentioned in the teaser journal. However, I like the eyelashes.
Nice explosion, Tecna. I hope you can develop a memory scanner with colour soon. I always love a high-tech aesthetic in animation and film.
I think the stage/instrument transformation is cute, but it isn't exactly necessary to the plot. The band could also be sidelined for a bit- because when something shows up all the time, it has less impact. Ah, that's just my silly opinion.
Any percussion section or large instrument player would be jealous of their dimensionally transcendent instrument handbags. I can't even get all my accessory percussion items in a handbag! Also, why is Aisha limited to 4 drums? She at least needs a triangle, a cowbell, and two cymbals.
Why wouldn't you take snacks from Kiko, he's such a cute widdle bunny. Also, Knut is just trying to be sweet while Griselda is constantly mistrusting. He's been at Alfea longer than he's probably been with the Trix! He's a bit clumsy, but not mal-intentioned.
The MOOPS are attacking!
I think Faragonda must be a Fairy of Barriers/Shields/Defence.
Ah Butterflix. I'm glad the sequence was truncated. Good riddance to the most annoying dance in Winx Club history. (Sorry if that was your jam- I respect your right to enjoy it where I can't!)
Giant MOOP is back, but it looks more like Knut than a fish.
Do they have a portal, time, transport, or science fairy in the school? Also, Lockette could have possibly helped in closing those portals. Tecna has been known to make portal devices. But no, let's always make the Winx look weak in the first episode.
Ah, but this makes the episode tie in nicely with all the other first episodes. Gotta be positive, huh? :sunshine:Episode 2
Darn you, Twinkly, your cuteness is infectious. You're just like my cat.
The ever-presence of emoticons/emojis. I guess they're easier to translate than words, though. (I tend to use them to represent action or characters, or as decoration. I don't see them replacing full conversations for me.)
I think Stella has a portal to her wardrobe back in the palace on Solaria.
Fairy ears mustn't suffer hearing loss due to exposure. Darn, you lot are making me envious again!
Efficient earplugs for herself, or better earphones for Musa- Tecna should've invented something like that by now. Maybe I'm trying to install too much common sense into this program.
Still, the emoticon/chibi Winx are adorable.
Did Stella forget every packing and shrinking spell in her arsenal? Or did she just pack the damn portal?
Oh. Riven. It's you.
He seems to be acting sincere again, but is it real this time?
Disco, disco outfits.
(Maybe I'm decorating a bit too much here!)
The Queen is very lucky to get a nose! Still, she lacks pupils, eyebrows, and ears, like the other Lumens. Also, we only see yellow ones here, but blue Lumens can be seen in the opening.
Ah, the old robot-sucking-the-magic-out-of-the-river trick. Get smart, Winx.
That devilishly handsome villain is back.
Here come the
Specialists to the rescue! They look so spindly. I don't think I'll get used to it. I'm getting too old. HELLO COSMIX!
The transformation effects are beautiful (and a bit more elegant than Precure) but I would've liked a tiny bit more action. I still prefer it to Butterflix. The only problem I have is with Stella's neckline, which looks like pink lettuce.
The constellation Winx in the outro are a nice touch. Yup, I didn't watch the credits for the first episode, sorry.Episode 3
Cosmix in Action? Let's hope!
Jeepers, these MOOPs are hungry wee blighters. They must be a backup for pinching the energy for Mr Good-Looking-And-Suave (in his human form, anyway.)
HERE COMES COSMIX! Shame the enemy is a portalling coward. Portalling is a word now. Because I said so.
Dude got Dragonwhacked! That must hurt.
I still think the Winx should be able to beat the singular MOOPs easier than this. They're in Cosmix now, for flying out loud!
Valtor's new digs are rendered well, too. Is this Darkar's old haunt, upgraded for a better-looking villain?
Again, it seems small magical creatures have small magic power.
Looks like the MOOPs have turned into MOOPWIMs. (M
enstruating.) They look tired, mad, and hungry.
Cosmix Attacks: Bloom has her Dragonwhack, Flora has potpourri (that stuff could overload the MOOPs' senses, I guess), Musa's sonic-seismic waves would annoy most Kiwis, and Tecna's conjuring scene looked fantastic.
The Winx are just as good as the Precure when it comes to pulling the right solution out of their pocket. Ah, to be expected. The Day is Saved Again! Valtor looks pissed at Onion-Headed Monobrow Guy (OMG for short), but I know he has a few
